I didn't say that and never have. I am just saying, Gtk does not enforce
much UI policy, and does not provide many of the features Gnome does.
Which means, if you write a Gtk app you have to implement those features
from scratch. Which means, it is harder to write an app in plain Gtk, or a
plain Gtk app will have less features, or a plain Gtk app will be less
bloated. Depending on your point of view.

I agree.
